Growth compartment of the SURF4 or SURF4x
model: UAS-SURF4-box
note: 1154

This is the exact same floating growth compartment box as the complete SURF4 and SURF4. Only the lights are different. If you want to use your own light, such as a CFL bulb, or your own LEDs, then you can get just this floating growth compartment and save yourself all the work of building it. If you later want to use our LED light, you can get it here:


The floating growth compartment has the Green-Grabber textures, ribbons, floating foam, and air tubing and connectors. The tubing is 3 ft (90 cm) of quad vinyl airline, but requires a 4-outlet air pump that can pump at least 10 total liters per minute (0.4 cfm), which small low-cost pumps cannot do. Pumps that say they can handle 15 or more airstones, or pumps with 4 tubing attachments instead of one, are best.You can have as much air as you like, however; 20 lpm pumps are no problem. One powerful pump which works exceptionally well for a low cost is the Fusion 700 from JW Pet. You will need two of them, which we sell separately HERE. It is quiet and has two outputs which are adjustable by turning the control knob; the two outputs perfectly match two of the four air inlets on the SURF4  Another even more powerful and completely silent pump, although more expensive and without a control, is the Whisper 300 from Tetra; you will also need two of them. Make sure to put any pump above the aquarium so that it will not drain any water if it shuts off.
